    Great suggestion indeed!

    I just bought an HMC SL-3090 lift from them and added the front wheels. They don't have them listed on the website from what I can tell, but they are two inserts that slide into the square openings on the long bar. In the picture, the lift is raised, which brings the wheels down so the lift can be moved. When the lift is down, the wheels move out of the way so the front of the lift doesn't move. That is helpful when rolling the bike on and off the lift.

    I can't remember what the cost was, but it wasn't out of place, considering an easy solution to the issue of moving the lift out of the way.

    Interesting thread. On my Handy lift, I’ve always just thrown the ramp on top, raised the lift all the way and deployed the safety bar, then picked up the ramp end of the lift and rolled it around the garage. Not sure I need to add another piece of equipment to the garage just to move the lift, but I can see it being handy for those who have to move lifts frequently or store them in tight quarters.

    Best,

    Interesting! They didn't say anything about that when I called to order... would probably be an easy upsell for many!

    I use my roll-around floor jack at the end without wheels. This works well in a straight line but sideways would be a failure.
